Knitting the Neighborhood will have knitters stitching 24 projects in nostalgic delight. Now knitters can make their own replicas of five of Mister Rogers’ iconic zippered cardigans in nine unisex adult sizes. Supplementary information on how to substitute in a knitted button band is included for those who may not feel ready to tackle a zipper. Additional patterns make it so even children can have their own Mister Rogers cardigan and babies can sport an adorable faux-cardigan onesie.
With patterns for puppets, the neighborhood trolley, cardigan Christmas ornaments, blankets with classic phrases stitched in, and a posable Mister Rogers doll with changeable penny loafers and sneakers, each project replicates or is heavily inspired by some aspect of one of the world’s favorite television shows. Including fun facts about and photography from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and Fred Rogers himself, this book is also a heartwarming tribute to everyone’s favorite neighbor.
